Celtics Rumors: Danny Ainge tells teams that Rajon Rondo isn't available

The Boston Celtics have their franchise player set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2015. Rajon Rondo has been in a lot of the news topics this season. Some speculate he will be traded, some say he should be traded, and some believe he will re-sign and stay in Boston. Whatever happens, it appears that it won't happen until the offseason is here, as Boston seems intent...

Ainge: Everybody Wants To Build Around Three Max Players

The Boston Celtics have a fairly even roster as they look to rebuild out of their Big 3 era. “If everybody were designing an NBA roster, I think they would probably suggest that you have three max [salary] players that are All-Star players like we’ve had in the past,” Danny Ainge said. “Like Miami had, like Cleveland has now. That would be ideal because it’s pretty clear...

Ainge: Draft lottery reform would be 'better for the game'

Danny Ainge says he support for NBA draft lottery reform was simple: He wants a league in which every team is trying to win. Making his regular appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “Toucher and Rich” on Thursday, the Boston Celtics’ president of basketball operations acknowledged he was definitely in the pro-reform camp. A proposal that would have lowered the worst team...

Danny Ainge explains somewhat disappointing offseason, says goal is to 'hang banners'

While speaking to the media yesterday, Danny Ainge discussed his mild displeasure with the way this summer turned out for the Celtics (via WEEI's Ben Rohrbach):There were things that we wanted to do that we weren't able to do. There were some things that were tempting that we didn't do, that I'm very glad we didn't do. I like that we were able to get some things...

Let’s take a moment to laugh at the Lakers

Danny Ainge and the Celtics didn’t exactly deliver on the fireworks promised by owner Wyc Grousbeck this owner, but at least we’re not the Lakers: What are the Lakers doing? Fewer contracts raised more eyebrows around the Las Vegas Summer League than this one. The Lakers continue to overvalue their own players. They seem determined to languish in mediocrity. This is Millsap money...

Your Morning Dump… Where Ainge should draft Embiid if he is available

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Ainge already had one heart attack. His hair has gone gray. He needs more stress in his life like he needs a double shot of espresso. Embiid would mean a year of waiting, worrying, wondering if the Celtics had wasted...

Chad Ford: Aaron Gordon the "favorite" to be picked by Celtics 6th overall

Hey, remember that time where Danny Ainge supposedly wasn't a big fan of this year's draft? Well, it turns out that Ainge has had a change of heart (either that or he was not being completely honest in one of the know..because it would be crazy for an executive to do that) as ESPN's Chad Ford said that Ainge has flip-flopped, and now really likes the draft...

Your Morning Dump… Where Danny Ainge likes 6 guys in this draft

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.  “Danny [Ainge] likes a bunch of guys in this draft,” Grousbeck told the Globe. “Our pick is going to put us in that range. Danny is going to like the guy we get. In other words, Danny likes six guys in this...

Danny Ainge's Top 5 draft picks of all-time

Danny Ainge has been the Celtics' boss for 11 seasons, and that means that he has presided over the team for 11 NBA drafts. In that time, he has had both remarkable hits that helped lead the franchise to their 17th NBA title, and spectacular misses that helped prevent a potential 18th. But what were his five best and five worst picks? I went back and looked at every pick the...
